Beware of the dog as man’s best friend may not be all that ‘friendly’ in the official Trailer for Spanish horror chiller Ropes. As a young quadriplegic girl is left alone at home with a dog that’s meant to help her!
Fresh from it’s screening at Manchester’s Grimmfest, where it won Best Feature Film and Best Actress. Ropes (or it’s Spanish name of Cordes) tells the story of a girl paralyzed. A rabid dog. A duel to death for survival.
Fans of Stephen King’s classic evil dog chiller Cujo will probably enjoy this one. Spanish horror has it’s own unique style and have had a hand in moulding the genre for a long time. Jose Luis Montesinos‘ debut film looks a solid debut and they old saying never work with Children and animals. In this one just put both in a film see what happens!
With her sister’s death still very recent, Elena, a young quadriplegic, has retired to a country house along with her father. There she has the help of Author, a Belgian Shepherd service dog. But the animal who is supposed to be her best friend has contracted a strange disease… and has turned into her worst enemy.
The film’s cast includes Paula Del Rio, Miguel Angel Jenner, Jordi Aguilar.
Ropes will be released in the UK and Ireland from 19th November on Digital HD format. You can download the film at iTunes, Amazon and Google.
